sweet. Grand Haven native behind the bench now. maybe he'll turn Cindy into a man..


I'd think Steve Y, Kenny , and Babcock (my guess for coach) will have more of a hand in that during the Olympics next year.

Looks like he's getting a head start on that playoff beard (as if they have a chance), or better termed his anti-beard. heh

In response to the Video:
1) My parents have been in the U.S. for 16 years and know better English than him....
2) My grandma who has been in the U.S. for 8 years knows the difference between dissapoint and dissapointed.
3) I wish there was a players response video to his post game conference.

I am excited that Gonchar is back for the sole purpose of me needing a D-man for my fantasy team.

I maintain that that mass exodus the Pens incurred in the offseason wasn't just down to them losing in the finals...

Bout time. Personally if I was the penguins brass, I'd have fired his ass after his public whining about obstruction in the finals last year. My friend lives in pits and hates the guy and thinks half the players would play much better with ANYONE else because they hate him.

Therrien was hired as the new Head Coach of the Penguins on December 15, 2005; a mid-season replacement for:

Ed Olczyk.

And Olczyk, as I maintained during his entire (short) tenure there, couldn't coach his way out of a paper bag.

Pardon my language, but aboutf****** time.

imo, Therrien was a bigger problem than Gonch + Whitney being out. I think anyone who paid attention to the coaching in the SCF can attest to that.
If some bored artist wants to make me a signature, feel free to cut loose and do so.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.

Just because the team went to the SCF with him doesn't mean it's an excuse for the horrible moves and play this team has been a part of this season. Big shakeup is necessary and can't fire Fleury with his fat contract.

Yep. I still maintain that their run to the SCF was the result of riding hot on two of the top 10 players in the league, and a hot goaltender. When they all ran out of steam and/or got shut down by the Detroit system, and Therrien failed to adapt coaching wise and their lack of depth became apparent, they got hammered.

Dan Bylsma, played on the same ice i play on. In Muskegon.. good to see muskegon area people making a stamp on sports.

Bylsma - Pens Coach
Abdelkader - Griffins Player
Herremans - Eagles Guard
Taylor - UM Defensive Tackle
Johnson - USC Wide Out.
McLouth - Pirates Outfielder.

Im sure there are more.. but those are the notables.

My sources are telling me that Gary Bettman is the frontrunner right now to take over as their coach for next season.

He will probably resume his duties as commissioner despite his position with the team.

Stay tuned for more on this story later.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Gary Bettman seems to be happy with his job as Cindy Crosby's Personal Assistant AKA Commissioner of the NHL, so I doubt that will happen.

2-2 against the Isles and soon it'll go into a shootout.
I was expecting Bylsma to win his first game convincingly,as new coaches often do.

Edit: They lost in a shootout. Poor Bylsma,his honeymoon was cut short.
In fact he didn't even have one.
